Prison & Justice Reform with Van Jones and Shaka Senghor

The Commonwealth Club presents a discussion with Van Jones (YLS '93) and Shaka Senghor on criminal justice reform in America

Van Jones, President & Co-Founder, #cut50; CNN Political Commentator; Former White House Special Advisor
Shaka Senghor, Director of Strategy and Innovation, #cut50; Writer; Mentor; Motivational Speaker

Currently, more than 2 million Americans are in prison, close to one out of every 100 Americans. As a result, the federal government spends $80 billion each year on the incarceration industry while projects such as improving our national infrastructure and educational systems continue to be drastically underfunded.

#Cut50, a national, bipartisan initiative co-founded by Van Jones, is working to safely and smartly reduce the American prison population by 50 percent over the next 10 years. Hear from Van and Shaka Senghor, author of the memoir Writing My Wrongs: Life, Death, and Redemption in an American Prison, about why they believe that now is the perfect time to achieve meaningful criminal justice reform and how #cut50 plans to make it happen.

Join INFORUM for a timely, insightful and illuminating conversation about criminal justice reform in America.
